In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

May stuff

Good grief peeps, did anyone miss me at all?  Did you think I got swallowed up by that swarm!   I hope everyone had a nice Memorial Day today and got to spend time with loved ones, and remembered those no longer with us.

As you know, My Shug had Achilles Tendon surgery.  Well, it ain't no walk in the park...for either of us.  "Can you get me this, can you help me with this, can you do this...".and God love him he has a big honkin' plaster cast on his leg and we are still (and forever) living in this one room and well....I've started several blog posts, and started reading blogs, and while I was trying to do a pos,t my computer shut right down on me so I took it as a sign and gave up!

So besides working on house stuff, which I have done a little bit of (insulating-ugh),  and making lots and lots of bee frames, here is everything that happened this month that I did not post about. 

I worked at the yarn store one day for Groovy Girl.  I don't think I made any mistakes, except she said we couldn't open any packages that came in the mail.  After much begging, we did open these really cool project bags that didn't officially come in the mail, they came by UPS.  She only has two left at this point though.  Rumor is there are more on the way.

We celebrated Vickie's birthday.
By spending the night at my Sister's house (her husband was gone that weekend)
and we had mimosas for breakfast.  That sounds so good I'd have one right now if I had the fixin's which I do not. I also made us some french toast, with real french bread, which was real yummy...and bacon.  Mmm

We also went to Allisonville nursery and did a little bit of shopping. 

I have a tree like this made out of wire, which I put pom poms on, and now I think I'm going to have to change it because I want to make one of these.  Cute huh?  This nursery has a ton of stuff...and plants.  But kind of pricey....just sayin'.
 Anyone every read the book or seen the movie, "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil?"  Well it's good.  And based on a true story, which I did not know until I went to Savannah, GA on vacay for a week a few years back, and toured the house.  Someday I am going to get this statue.
I think she looks a little evil in the eyes, and she had a chip in the front, so I decided not to take her home with me.

I did, however, take a few things home with me one day while my peg legged Shug and I went to visit his Mom, and saw a garage sale right across the street from her Assisted Living Facility!
 We got this mirror, which is going to go lovely with our bathroom vanity upstairs in the half bath.
 And I got this mail thing which I am not using right now, but I think it will be cute to drop keys into when we move upstairs.
 And My Shug came home with this, which I have not used yet, but I like.  Looks like a big martini glass!
  Something I did not bring home this year....mushrooms (sad face)  I went mushroom hunting in our woods several times.  I did not realize until I went walking that we lost a LOT of trees last November when we got the tornado.  Look at this one!
Looks kind of scary!  Or mad! 
 And the sweetest news of all....Ty Joseph was born.  My Great Nephew!!!  A boy in the family!!!!  I now have two nephews, a nephew-in-law, and four nieces, and I love them to pieces!
Look at that precious face.  He was just a few hours old here, and I got to hold him.  "SMILE"

Well, I must go now.  My Shug is here and we are going to watch a movie.  
I do not get as much done when he is home.  
I am missing all of your blogs...and I hope to visit soon.
By the way, you all cracked me up with your comments. When honeybees swarm they are the nicest ever.  I've never been stung getting a swarm.

Chat later...

  1. Yes I missed you; I even posted a link to your first call of the season post.....betcha had swarms of visitors!
    Hope your Shug heals quickly.

  2. I have been watching for a post. The swarm pictures were scary. Sweet baby face, Nursery looks like a fun visit! May sure did fly by.

  3. Cindy, Please keep us posted about shug's surgery. I have had foot problems for years now. I like the goodies you got for the house. Don't tell shug this...but don't give him a bell to ring for serve...I gave Ted one when he was sick...gaaa I wanted to wring his neck before it was over. Hope things get back to normal soon. xoxo,Susie
